I don’t workout on Thursdays and Nate doesn’t have school. Thursday is my SAHM hump day. Almost there, let’s get out of the house and have some fun.
After a slow morning we’d typically head out to Target, I’d grab a coffee and we’d take our time browsing. Then we’d go to Marshalls or Home Goods. Sometimes we’d just go to the mall, the kids would play and I’d grab a coffee, they’d get a pretzel and we’d wander around. I don’t typically have items in mind when we do this. But I’d come home with a new necklace or some makeup, maybe a top and the kids would get a toy or a book. Then we’d have lunch out. It was a great way to spend time, all of us happy.
The thing about Thursday is it is all about excess. Fun, sure, but the stuff isn’t necessary.
It’s 10am and the beds are made, the kitchen clean and there is laundry running. The boys are dressed and happily playing. I’m fine, too. Trying not to think about shopping and just enjoy the day with my boys. A nice day at home. I LOVE to be home so that helps, I think. This will be our stay home day now. The rest of the week we are running around, to school and the gym and running errands. Now instead of wasting money. I’ll spend the time with the boys and enjoying us. And, well, probably doing lots of pinning and day dreaming but this isn’t supposed to change who I am and what I love, but to help me appreciate what I already have.
